BJP leader Nitin Gadkari filed a defamation case against Arvind Kejriwal, who has resigned as Delhi chief minister, in a court here Tuesday and said that Kejriwal has tarnished his image by calling him corrupt.

The complaint was filed before Metropolitan Magistrate Gomati Manocha. 

The complaint said that on January 31 "Kejriwal has deliberately released the list of India's most corrupt people mentioning his (Gadkari's) name in a grossly irresponsible manner". 

Kejriwal "has deliberately tried to malign (Gadkari's) image though he is not involved in any wrongful or corrupt act," the complaint stated.

Gadkari requested the court to take action against Kejriwal and prosecute him for defaming him.
